Wishtel Ira Tablets - Cheap, Android/Linux Powered & Support Indian Languages

Wishtel, a company based out of Mumbai, India has come up with its own series of Android-powered tablets under the brand name 'IRA'. The 3 tablets are called IRA Thing E, IRA E and IRA Icon E. All of these tablets have a 7.0 inch screen and are running on either Android 2.2 Froyo/ 2.3 Gingerbread OS or Linux OS.

Giving a direct competition to the ever-popular Aakash Tablet or UbiSlate for being the World's Cheapest Tablet, IRA has entered the market with cheap prices ranging between INR 4,000 and INR 5,500 ( approx. US$80-$110). The prominent features of these tablets will cater to all of your basic needs. We have a 7-inch display capacitive touch screen with a built-in WCDMA 3G Internet access and WiFi Support. These tablets can play almost all audio and video formats. Battery is 4000ma capacity.

Powered by the WonderMedia PRIZM WM8650 ARM SoC, we have 720p HD video support and a built-in camera (specs of which have not been revealed.) The battery life is average of up to four hours. One feature that stands out is the support for internet experience in native languages such as Hindi in India. But with the launch of the tablets like Asus Transformer Prime in India and other options like Toshiba’s LT170 or Acer Iconia A510, it remains to be seen whether the Indian cheap tablets even stand a chance to make it big.

No further details are mentioned about these tablets. You may check their official website for brochures here. Following is an introductory video from the makers, that does not speak much about the tablets. Still, you can take a look here:
